We all know that how good WordPress platform really is. Not only standard CMS based websites are now being developed using WordPress, but it is also being used for Mobile app development. Using RESTful API, we can easily extend the WordPress framework to mobile apps. There are many plugins that enable some of the WordPress features via REST API.
JSON API for WordPress Plugin is one such plugin. It allows you to access posts, pages, categories, tags via JSON REST API. Most of these features are only for viewing. Although it allows you to create post and comment via REST API, it does not support user authentication and user registration which are two of the the most common and sought after features for any mobile app.
For user authentication, you can use this controller, WordPress JSON API Auth Controller
For user registration via REST API, I have developed another plugin, JSON API User WordPress Plugin.
JSON API User is a plugin that extends the JSON API Plugin with a new Controller to allow user registration.
First you have to install the JSON API for WordPress Plugin (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/json-api/installation/).
To install JSON API User just follow these steps:
– upload the folder “json-api-user” to your WordPress plugin folder (/wp-content/plugins)
– activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress or by using the link provided by the plugin installer
– activate the controller through the JSON API menu found in the WordPress admin center (Settings -> JSON API)
Hope that helps!
